Good luck on the price match. If I recall correctly, their price match terms disqualify other offers or promotions. (As always, get the right cashier or be persistent and you might get lucky).
Also, in my experience, the TRU accounting program on the cash registers does not allow the cashier to enter multiple discounts. The only way to make a double discount happen is if the discounted price is manually entered. Typically, the average TRU cashier does not know how to do this. I always go the the customer service desk, ask for the manager, and politely and pleasantly make my case. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Another factor in multiple discounts is how the discounts are applied. If you have a $10.00 item, a 30% discount ($10.00-30% = $7.00) is better than the discounts applied separately ($10.00 - 20% = $8.00-10%= $7.20).
Why am I not surprised?
In any case, I'll be making a trip tomorrow to see if I can get price adjustments on items I've bought recently (prior to the 20% off coupon). I'll also ask whether I can use the coupon on top of price-matching, which I highly doubt.
Btw, there are a few that are worth getting, like #42042 for example.
(20% off, $5 rewards coupon, paid with TRU gift cards acquired on ebay at 20% off) Stacking is fun!
They said something along the lines of "prices can be matched after deducting any TRU coupon savings". Well, if the competitor price is lower than it is with the coupon, then why would I bother even using the coupon in the first place?
Also check you eBay daily deals or eBay gift cards home page (from the link on ebaydotcom) Pretty much every time there is a 15% TRU I think you can find it in one of those two places.
"save $5 on your LEGO construction purchase of $30 or more use promo code #979378 at checkout (excludes LEGO Dimensions and Hard to Find)"
New sets are priced at MSRP for a period of time before getting the TRU bump.
So using this on a new set + a promo poly, if there is one, is a very good TRU deal.
Too bad I didn't get a coupon this round.
